AP Exam Ordering


Students that will be taking Advanced Placement Exams in May 2020 must complete the new registration process implemented by College Board.

The exam ordering process is TWO parts. Both have to be completed by the November 4th, 2019, deadline to guarantee an exam on test day and avoid late fees, unless specifically described below. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that both required steps listed are completed.

  1. Register for the exam on the College Board website using the Join Code provided by your instructor.
    • Do NOT create duplicate accounts with College Board.
      • If you do not know your login information, begin by using the ‘Forgot Username’ option on the College Board website -follow the prompts.
      • If you cannot confirm that you have or don’t have an existing account after completing that process, call College Board at 888.225.5427 and they can determine if you have an existing account and they will provide the username. You will then need to go and complete the ‘Forgot Password’ process if you still do not remember you password.
    • If you are planning on taking an AP Exam but will not be in the course at GOHS during the 2019-2020 school year, you must see Mrs. Stadick in the Counseling Suite to receive the EXAM ONLY Join Code.
      • Students in Exam Only sections will not have access to the online prep materials provided by College Board.
      • The deadline for Exam Only sections is November 4th, 2019.
    • If you are not in the class in the Fall Semester, however will be in the class in the Spring Semester, you will register on the College Board website by the February 23, 2020, deadline.
  2. Pay for the exam(s) through the GOHS School Cash Online Webstore.
    • Exams are $100/exam ($55/exam for students in the Federal Free/Reduced Lunch Program).
    • After the November 4th deadline there is a $40/exam late fee for students enrolled in the class in the fall semester, Exam Only sections, and/or Homeschool students.
